Former Drug User

Growing up with an absent father, Jordon MacLean never felt like he fit in. He began using drugs in high school and later started dealing marijuana and cocaine in Vancouver. After 20 years and an overdose, he sought treatment in Ottawa. Now eight years sober, Jordon has earned a Social Service Worker college diploma and works at the Salvation Army’s Transitional House for men. He is also an organizer with the Campaign for Safer Consumption Sites in Ottawa and runs a drop-in for the Drug Users Advocacy League of Ottawa.
